UCAM (participant 2) is responsible for OCAC. The OCAC consortium includes studies of ovarian cancer with over 10,000 cases and 10,000 controls. The consortium has established a central database for genotype and basic lifestyle data. A description is found at [http://dceg.cancer.gov/ovarian/].
Detailed guidelines for quality assurance of genotype wide data have been developed and four rounds of genotyping have been completed with the first joint paper being published in Cancer Research.
